A SelectSmart.com Selector by Airman First Class duJardin
According to the U.S. Marine Corps' survival guidelines in "Afoot in the Desert" your decisions can determine survival or death. Scenario: You and a few friends have crashed landed in the Gobi Desert. The plane is destroyed. The temperatures will exceed 100 degrees with no chance of rain. Mission: To survive for up to 1 week until you reach civilization. You must choose which items are valuable and which actions to take. Carrying unnecessary items will only serve to weigh you down and waste your energy. Choose carefully!
Items from Amazon.com you might like.
